To find a place in a nursery, luck is not always enough. Being well informed, prepared and motivated is the key to winning the Grail. Laure Leter, author of "Modes de garde, instructions for use", gives us his advice to put all the chances on your side.

1) Register as soon as possible

  • If you live in a big city where places are expensive, it is more than advisable to pre-register your pregnancy, around the sixth month. Scary? You are allowed, but your strategy for a place in a nursery passes by: "The best thing is still to call your town hall as soon as you learn about your pregnancy.It will tell you what is the appropriate time to put all the chances on your side, "advises Laure Leter, author of" Modes of custody, instructions "* This pre-registration must then be confirmed after your delivery, with a birth certificate.
